CAN YOU HELP?
We have recently taken part in the Annual Covenant Service and there will be another at 6.30pm on January 29th for those unable to be present on 1st January.
During that service all present committed themselves to working for God by saying together,
"I am no longer my own but yours, put me to what you will, rank me with whom you will, put me to doing, put me to suffering; let me be employed for you or laid aside for you, exalted for you or brought low for you; let me be full let me be empty, let me have all things, let me have nothing; I freely and wholeheartedly yield all things to your pleasure and disposal."
In the service it stated;
"Christ has many services to be done: some are easy, others are difficult; some bring honour, others bring reproach; some are suitable to our natural inclinations and material interests, others are contrary to both..."
Have you thought carefully about those promises? There are a number of areas and jobs within the life of Trinity that need some help urgently. Many of the existing workers have been in post for a long time. are tired and need help. Please consider whether YOU could give a little time to helping keep our church and community life healthy and growing.
Here are two of those jobs:
FIRE OFFICER. A person with commonsense is needed to help us to review and establish policies deal with fire. A Fire Safety check should be carried out and arrangements for escape in case of fire looked at. You do not need to have technical knowledge. Information and check lists are available to help and the Property Committee will support whoever takes this on.
Speak to David Holland, Penny Masters or a Steward if you feel able to help.
COFFEE SHOP. More people are needed to help with the Coffee Shop on Wednesday and Friday mornings. This is a valuable out-reach activity of the church which is much appreciated by those who visit for tea/coffee or a snack. Can you make tea/coffee, filled rolls or can wash-up and enjoy meeting people?
The time involved is about four hours unless you wish to make cakes at home or do
the shopping. There is a rota of friendly helpers who would welcome you and you would be paired up with someone who has done it before.
Speak to Kathleen Hilton, David Holland or Penny Masters if you can help.
